Thomas Mason- Strolling through History
Fighting his way through Industrial Revolution, Thomas Mason began his journey in English textile industry in 1750s. Back then, textile products involved hand spinning which were then converted into fabrics using handlooms. Foreseeing the bloom that the revolution was going to bring, Mason founded one of the first cotton fabric factories in Leeds in 1796.
The Victorian Era maximized the expansion of British Empire, also in terms of textile industry, particularly the brand founded by Thomas Mason making it a “benchmark for male elegance”. In fact, the growth of the company solidified it as leading supplier in London confirming the city as the capital of men’s elegance at that time. Thomas Mason’s fabrics drew their inspiration from Royal families and aristocrats that defined sophistication and royalty of the English style.
After making its way through these two important eras, the world faced the First World War. Although, the entire world was suffering from its impact, Thomas Mason became a ray of hope for the pilots who wore densely woven cotton suits that prevented the airmen for heat and exposure which became waterproof on coming in contact with the sea. Hence, Thomas Mason served as a savior for many airmen and indirectly became supreme contributor to the war.
Having continued delivering the aristocratic style between the two wars, it was then in 1936 that Thomas Mason became the exclusive supplier for the shirt maker of English Royalty- Turnbull and Asser. The company grew with time by making colorful, designer shirts that endorsed unique patterns like that of striped and checked that boasted of the stylish side of men.
